New Barca Deal For Messi ?

Stunning reports have made waves in Spain this week, suggesting Manchester United made a move for Barca’s superstar Lionel Messi.

The side-lined Barca forward allegedly turned the offer down. But with PSG, Manchester City and Bayern also continuously being linked with Messi, Barca are now desperate to extend the Argentine’s contract.

Barca president, Sandro Rosell, has assured fans that he “will move heaven and earth for Messi to stay” at the club while he remains president.

It’s understood that talks are ongoing over a new deal and Rossell said: “It would be very difficult for Messi to leave.”

The 26-year-old Argentine signed a new contract in December last year that runs until 2018 but the contract contains a release clasue of £215m.

So far Messi has always indicated he doesn’t look for a new challenge and wants to finish his career at the Nou Camp.

The Argentine has scored 223 La Liga goals in 257 matches and 65 Champions League gaols in 82 matches for Barca. He has won the FIFA Ballon d’Or for the past four consecutive years and became Barca’s all-time top scorer in all official club competitions at the age of 24.
